Most of the motion calculations were handled by AnimationEngine, a LiveCode add-on by Malte Brill. Trigonometry was never our strong point so having a good motion / collision math resource (with a well thought out help section) was essential. Also, Malte supplied several example games with source code - a great learning tool that really helped get PingPop off the ground.
